Patreon Day and New Books

For Patreon People: I've posted the first snippet to the Patreon.

Story in anthology: I have a story in the The Gods of Lovecraft anthology, and it's now up for preorder at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

My story is about a high society detective and her two partners investigating mysterious disappearances.

It will be out on December 11, 2015, and the other authors are Adam Nevill, Laird Barron, Bentley Little, Jonathan Maberry, Brett J. Talley, Christopher Golden, Joe R. Lansdale, Seanan McGuire, and Rachel Caine.

New Books:

* The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The patched-up ship has seen better days, but it offers her everything she could possibly want: a spot to call home, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and some distance from her past.

* The Acolyte by Nancy Hightower
"In The Acolyte, Hightower reimagines the lives of biblical figures, particularly women, so that they stand out in unexpected beauty and strangeness. Vivid, uncompromising, and saturated with spiritual longing, these poems offer both a critique of our old readings of the Bible, and a passionate series of new ones." -- Sofia Samatar, author of A Stranger in Olondria

* The Gulf of Time and Stars by Julie E. Czerneda
First in a new science fiction trilogy, set in the same universe as the Clan Chronicles, by the Prix Aurora Award-winning Julie E. Czerneda.

* The Nectar of Nightmares by Craig Laurance Gidney
What’s it about: A short story about a different type of monster. A kaleidoscopic story, full of dream logic.

* Weighing Shadows by Lisa Goldstein
Ann Decker fixes computers for a living, and in the evenings she passes the time sharpening her hacking skills. It's not a very interesting life, but she gets by—until one day she's contacted with a job offer for a company called Transformations Incorporated. None of her coworkers have ever heard of it before, and when Ann is finally told what the company does, she can hardly believe it: TI has invented technology to travel in time.

* Black Wolves by Kate Elliott - now available
Twenty two years have passed since Kellas, once Captain of the legendary Black Wolves, lost his King and with him his honor. With the King murdered and the Black Wolves disbanded, Kellas lives as an exile far from the palace he once guarded with his life.

* Jeweled Fire by Sharon Shinn - now available
As one of the four princesses of Welce, Corene always thought she might one day become queen. Only circumstances changed, leaving fiery Corene with nothing to show for a life spent playing the game of court intrigue—until a chance arises to become the ruler of a nearby country.

Yea! Thank you for setting up a Patreon account. I liked the first snippet, and am trying to not start a wild re-read of the Raksura novels--because there's both a new Shinn and Elliott (beyond the other books already waiting to be read).

Just finished the Patreon snippet. (Saw the email this morning, but, well... let me not tell you about my day. Anyway, I finally managed to go and read it, and...)


I'd have donated anyway, just to make it easier for you to write, but this is totally worth it.

Thanks for the signal boost, Martha!

I want to thank you for mentioning interesting new books. Given the lack of actual bookstores to browse in now, it is hard for me to find out about books I might want to buy if they're not by authors I'm familiar with and following somewhere on the internet. Recommendations from someone whose tastes I trust help a lot.
